We have some pretty significant changes tot he depth chart this week thanks to injuries. First, let’s look at the offense:

  1. King Doerue - Fr.
  2. Zander Horvath - So.
  3. Da’Joun Hewitt - Fr.

WR

  1. David Bell - Fr.
  2. Jordan Bonner - Fr. (RS)

LT

  1. Grant Hermanns - Jr.
  2. Eric Miller - Fr. (RS)

LG

  1. Alex Criddle - Sr.
  2. Jimmy McKenna - Fr. (RS)

C

  1. Viktor Beach - So.

WR

  1. Jackson Anthrop - Jr.
  2. TJ Sheffield - Fr.

WR

  1. Amad Anderson - Fr. (RS)
  2. Milton Wright - Fr.

Officially, there is no Elijah Sindelar or Rondale Moore on the depth chart. DJ Washington is also off after breaking his tibia and ankle on Saturday. Cam Craig makes his first appearance on the depth chart at the No. 2 right tackle spot. Sheffield moves behind Anthrop. David Bell slides to the starting spot in place of Jared Sparks and Jordan Bonner, who has not played, is behind him.

Defense

DE

  1. Derrick Barnes - Jr.
  2. Kai Higgins - Sr.

DT

  1. Kai Higgins -Sr.
  2. Lawrence Johnson - Fr. (RS) OR Jack Sullivan - Fr. (RS)

DT

  1. Anthony Watts - Jr.
  2. Giovanni Reviere - So.

DE

  1. George Karlaftis - Fr.
  2. Branson Deen - Fr. (RS)

LB

  1. Jaylan Alexander - So.
  2. Kieren Douglas - So.

LB

  1. Ben Holt - GS
  2. Derrick Barnes - Jr.

LB

  1. Cornel Jones - Jr.
  2. Jaylan Alexander - So.

CB

  1. Corey Trice - Fr. (RS)
  2. Kenneth Major - So.

FS

  1. Navon Mosley - Sr.
  2. Brennan Thieneman - Jr.

SS

  1. Jalen Graham - Fr.
  2. Marvin Grant - Fr.

CB

  1. Jordan Ricker - Fr. (RS)
  2. Dedrick Mackey -So.

Brohm mixes things ups with Trice and Rucker replacing Major and Mackey as the starting corners. Moving Barnes back to linebacker can be a positive move as well, as he is No. 2 behind Holt this week. kai Higgins moves into a tarting spot at tackle now next to Watts.

Special Teams

K

  1. J.D. Dellinger - Jr.
  2. Chris van Eekeren - Fr.

P

  1. Brooks Cormier - Fr.
  2. Zac Collins - So.

LS

  1. Nick Zecchino - Jr.
  2. Brooks Royal - So.

Holder

  1. Danny Carollo - Jr.
  2. Zac Collins - So.

Kickoff Returns

  1. Jackson Anthrop - Jr.
  2. Zander Horvath - So.

Punt Returns

  1. Jackson Anthrop - Jr.
  2. TJ Sheffield - Fr.

Rondale is moved off of returns, as expected, but Horvath back on kickoffs? That’s a surprise. We need speed back there and we don’t have anyone else? Sheffield returned a pair of punts against Minnesota and did okay.
